Highy recomend this. I am envy of the office. Review by Richard

This is a great machine and desk combo. It takes up a surprisingly small area of my office. I have used it for a year and have had no issues other than the belt became off center during my company's last move. The fix was easy as there was a video online that gave easy directions on how to correct. It is very quiet. I have found that I can walk at about 1.5 miles an hour and still work comfortably and type. However 1.2 miles is usually my sweet spot as that is the speed where I don't break out in a heavy sweat. I am a CPA so I have to read a lot of documents while walking. Key is having some good screens. I would recommend 22-24 inches. Nice surprise was how much the padded armrests helped relieve some of the hand stress from having to type a lot in my job.
No Regrets Review by Primary Care Doc

I've had my desk for two weeks and it's the best decision for me. I am a primary care doctor, and use this desk from 8 to 5 daily while doing my charting on the computer, internet research, speaking on the phone, refilling prescriptions, answering emails. Typing is not a problem for me. We also have a voice recognition dictation system I can use which is hands free, perfect for charting and walking. My patients have started to take an interest, as many are looking at ways to become more active and maybe it helps to know I practice what I preach. I haven't tried the Blue Tooth system, I just wear my Fit Bit every day. I am averaging 12,000 steps a day at work, when before, without the treadmill, I sat most of the day and averaged 2000-3000 steps a day. When I get home from work, I don't feel like I have to hit the gym for cardio, I just go to yoga or to the jacuzzi. I have more energy than before I got this desk, and more mental focus, and definitely better mood. Also, my neck and shoulder pains from slouching over a computer, seated, are gone. What else can I say? I purchased professional looking walking shoes, just as comfortable as athletic shoes, I am on and off the treadmill all day long and it's not a problem to restart treadmill each time (takes 3 seconds). My average speed is 1.4 mph while typing and mousing or 1.9 mph while dictating or speaking on phone. If I go faster than 2.0 mph, I might break a light sweat. If I lose a few pounds from this, that would be great, or if I can have a few more cheats on my diet and not gain weight, I would consider that a benefit as well. In the long run, I hope to reduce likelihood of chronic diseases more evidence is showing is associated with amount of hours in a day we are seated.
Walk While You Work! Review by Hermit

I am really enjoying strolling through my work day. I find one mile per hour is the optimal speed for operating mouse and keyboard. Assembly was easy, but it is heavy to move around, so you might need help. So far, it works like a champ.
This desk is great.. Review by Easy Bee

This desk is great...I work from home-8-10 hours sitting at my desk is the norm. My first day with this desk I felt so much better at the end of the day-it was great. I walked slowly and stood for 10 hours--walked 4 miles instead of sitting down all day... Next day it was raining so I watched a movie on amazon prime and walked 3 miles while I watched it. EPIC. I've read some other reviews--it is a little harder to use the mouse but just slow down for those periods of work. I wish I had made this move 9 years ago!!! Live and learn...

The treadmill desk is sturdy. It's a great size, and easily holds two computers and stacks of books. The treadmill has lots of features, and runs smoothly. I love the treadmill desk!
Happy so far Review by Ajay

I purchased this Treadmill Desk about a month ago. I am certainly enjoying it. I have in the meantime also have had some back aches, especially having spent around 15+ years and 10+ hrs a day on a chair and all of a sudden when it is all either standing or walking. It will be a while before I get used to it. I love the product for couple of reasons.... It keeps me awake (I generally get sleepy after lunch) on my toes. Helps burn my calories. The table is pretty sturdy. I wish there was a way to have some kind of adjustment such that I could sit once in a while. I am kind of glad it is not there because I probably would end up sitting more. Overall I like the treadmill desk as it is a positive change in my lifestyle where I spend long hours in front of the computer working from home.
and love it. I have lost over 20LBS Review by Page w

I bought this treadmill desk a little over 4 months ago, and love it. I have lost over 20LBS, am able to walk and work on my computer very easily. It's no miracle machine other than it enables you to walk while you work or browse the internet. I have put in 3 + hours a day 5 days a week to lose the 20LBS, but it seems easy while I work. It's definitely worth the investment if you put in the time to walk. If you have a job where you can work while walking ex. (Work from home, or boss allows in your office) then this is the perfect solution for you. The Bluetooth feature is a little buggy, but once you figure out how to work the system, it's pretty easy. I would highly recommend!!!
Why sit or stand, when you can walk while at your desk? Review by liberal warrior

It arrived 5 days ago...so this is not a review of how well the unit holds up. It survived the cross country trip pretty well, though there was a hole in the box for the desk big enough to sink a golf ball in. No damage noticed, but one nut and washer were missing...and one of the leveling knobs for the desk feet. That leveling knob was not lost on the trip, but rather, it never was screwed in place as the feet for the desk are packaged in plastic bags and they were in perfect shape. So, a call to LifeSpan and the parts were sent 2nd day mail delivery.

Setup was a bit of a challenge for the desk as I did it all myself. I'm sure it's much easier with 2 people. The instructions said to extend the legs before attaching the desk top...but that top ain't light and it was much easier to have the legs as short as possible when placing the top. Watch the wire harness sticking out from under the desk top and make sure you don't pinch it on the leg supports.

Even as I bought it, I was wondering if I could build my own top for the desk as I considered the one that comes with this unit to be too wide. It's 46.5" wide. However, the console is well attached to the desk top and the wiring runs inside tubular steel underneath the desk top before it comes out next to the right leg. Wiring also runs inside the right leg and you clip the two together after you place desk top on the legs and bolt together. Anyway, trying to pull the wiring out and custom make a smaller desktop seems like way too much trouble. It would be a lot easier to just cut the desk top as it is. That seems rather a shame as LifeSpan has done a nice job of making a smooth table edge all around the desk top. I'll just live with the desk sticking out father than I'd prefer for my location.

I haven't seen any guidelines on what height to set the desk. I will mention, again, that adjusting the height of the desk top with only one person is not particularly easy. I do it by wedging myself between the cross support for the legs and the bottom of the desktop, then releasing one of the legs by pulling on the knob. Then I push up with my back on that side of the desk and reset the knob at the next higher setting. I then do the other side. If you don't want to mess with this, and you don't have someone to help you manipulate the desk height, you might want to consider the model that adjusts the desk height automatically.

I have to say that using my computer while walking on the treadmill doesn't seem all that hard. My issue with the mouse is a tendency to push the right button when I didn't mean to. I would also suggest that users give themselves a little time to get used to being on the treadmill. Trust me when I say that it's easy to spend a lot of time on this machine without realizing that your leg muscles aren't used to walking that far. You might need better shoes for walking too. I'm guessing walking speed makes a big difference. If you're just shuffling along at low speed, it's probably not going to matter, but If you're walking faster than normal...which seems pretty easy to do, your leg muscles may remind you the next day that you over-estimated your conditioning!
Very happy with the unit Review by Emily M

Very happy with the unit. I'm a writer, and this thing is perfect. I looked at several treadmill desks, and chose this one because the desk is adjustable, other feedback pointed to high quality, and it's designed for exactly what I need: doing something with my legs while doing something with my brain. My daughter (14 with autism) also uses it while playing games and reading books, and she's much happier to have it so she can move around indoors in bad weather. We've got a lot of that in the PNW!

I do wish they included a small bottle of the silicon spray, as the manual recommends spraying it before the first use. The spray is fairly easy to apply, and not outrageously expensive. As a plus, assembly is fairly easy. I recommend a socket screwdriver with hex attachments. Be warned: this thing is heavy, and it comes in two boxes, both of which are also heavy! Have help on hand to get it inside and to its intended spot - they will only deliver to your door. Mine had to go upstairs, which was a barrel of monkey laughs.

One note for those who haven't used a treadmill before: I have severe motion sickness - it's so bad I can't sit in hammocks or rocking chairs. Starting and going forever is fine for me, but stopping briefly makes me nauseous. I've had it for almost a month now, and the issue is less than the first few times, so that's a positive, but if you do have motion sickness issues, it's something to consider when deciding whether to go with a treadmill or not.

Also, as many others have said, productivity tanks at first, then goes back up as you gets used to it. It's not suitable for work where mouse/pen precision is required.
LOVE LOVE LOVE it. What a surprise for a non exerciser!!! Review by marcia53

Oh wow. I was SOOO worried about ordering this online because reshipping would be a nightmare. Well, thankfully, it works. It is QUIET, easy to put together and a life saver. I thought I was walking a lot until I added the time I was on my computer. When I looked up a standing desk like my husband has at work I came across this. Early Xmas gift to me. But a life saver at the same time. I put in a minimum of 5 miles just checking email etc...ok, some shopping in there too. lol But really I could put in more but as long as I get my 10,000 steps a day in i dont feel guilty shutting it off. I do NOT like to exercise at all but if I want to play a game, shop online or check email then I am doing it without thought. I have no problem getting in 5 miles a day above what I normally would get. If I could give whoever came up with the idea 10 stars they would get it.
